Platform for the Treatment of Risk Factors in Dementia


As part of our research projects, a digital platform is being developed to provide low-threshold access to individualized treatment strategies for neurodegenerative diseases in an outpatient setting. Using digital methods and mobile sensor technologies to control risk factor-based intervention strategies, this treatment process will be integrated into a mobile support solution and accompanied by various tools. The aim of this position is to contribute to the development of applications that will be integrated into the digital platform for the treatment of specific risk factors for dementia.


As part of your bachelor thesis, you will be responsible for the design and development of selected aspects of the platform. This is designed to help users manage and treat risk factors for dementia such as physical inactivity, poor diet, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption.

  • You will conduct a thorough review of existing dementia prevention and treatment applications and identify the best alternative courses of action.
  • You work with a team of developers and experts to develop concepts for a user-friendly and effective platform.
  • You implement requirements and concepts in the form of an app or into an existing web application.
  • You conduct user testing to evaluate the effectiveness of the application in managing and treating risk factors for dementia.
  • You document the design and development process according to relevant standards in medical device development.
